Spreading the Words

3'12"

Read by Andrea Palandri

The early Irish hero Cú Chulainn was accomplished in an array of feats, including the all-encompassing ‘body-feat’. Learn more about them in this episode.

‘Spreading the Words’ is a series on the histories of Irish words from literature and everyday life written by Sharon Arbuthnot and Máire Ní Mhaonaigh and produced in association with the book A History of Ireland in 100 Words and the electronic Dictionary of the Irish Language
(www.dil.ie).
